Niagara Park Stadium Sees Plenty of Activity

Gosford Council is celebrating a successful first year in charge of Niagara Park Stadium.

Council’s  director  of Community  Growth  Ms Judy Jaeger said that in this short period of time the venue had gone from strength to strength. “Since we took over the reins at the stadium, we’ve been  able  to  establish it as one of the region’s premier sporting and event facilities,” Ms Jaeger said. “In the last fi ve months alone  the  stadium  has hosted  around  20  very substantial  sporting events that have included everything from basketball to table tennis as well as archery and roller derby. “These sporting events have brought almost 5,000 competitors and spectators through  the  stadium’s doors. “Thousands of visitors have also attended many successful  community events like the Central Coast Connect  Day,  Highland Dance  Tournament  and Festival of Magic,” said Ms Jaeger. The events happening at Niagara Park Stadium across October included the NSW State Junior Indoor Hockey  Championships, Gosford  Hospital  24 hour Volleyball Marathon Fundraiser  and  Central Coast Bocce Tournament. “Plans are also nearing completion to redevelop the stadium,” Ms Jaeger added. “We want to turn it into a modern community and sporting complex that is also home to a playground, library and cafe as well as meeting rooms and other community facilities.”
